Our Recognitions, Awards

The health tourism complex in Hajdúszoboszló focuses on guest satisfaction. The fulfilment of the company philosophy is also monitored by external evaluators, i.e. by applying for quality awards. We believe that today, a reputation is built and maintained on quality.
In 2001, the quality-oriented process started, the first step of which was to obtain ISO 9001-2001 certification. This year, the quality management system has been implemented in the complex spa and health services and in the day care sanatorium. In 2003, the full range of services was extended.

The Shiba Award was established by Dr. Shoji Shiba, a Japanese professor, to recognise the efforts of companies and individuals who have excelled in implementing the Comprehensive Quality Management System. According to the professor’s principles, quality is no longer just about the quality of the products, but must be present throughout the company. Our spa successfully applied for a Shiba certificate in 2004. Following the Shiba letter, the company was invited to apply for the Hungarian Section of the European Quality Society. Based on the evaluation, the spa and beach bath services, the Aquapark and the Árpád swimming pool were declared winners. The award was presented in November 2005 at the 14th edition of the Hungarian Quality Week.
